About Us

We are:

We are a social enterprise that believes in transformative change. We believe that quality education can break barriers, all kinds of ceilings, and divisions and truly transform lives unleashing the capabilities of young people leading to a transformed society.

We see teachers as the gatekeepers of the system. Any changes made to the system – curriculum, technology, infrastructure – will have an impact only if let in through this gate. We also understand that they need support from the immediate ecosystem. That is why we work towards inspiring, engaging and empowering our rural schoolteachers and other stakeholders who impact them.

Research studies on teacher effectiveness suggest that student taught by high-performing teachers will progress three times as fast as those taught by low-performing teachers (Barber & Mourshed, 2007). It is of paramount importance that we create opportunities for all our teachers to perform at high levels.

We believe:

·     A rounded approach of making them understand the essence of their profession,

·     Deepening their subject knowledge and

·     Augmenting their relationship with other stakeholders

Will create extraordinary, positive classrooms where student learning takes the center seat.

We align with:

UN SDG goal 4 – Quality Education

Yugen aims to achieve this through enabling teachers, enriching their knowledge and skills on neuroscience & psychology of learning, strengthening their well being and creating a community of learners in teachers. Yugen leverages new age technology and innovative design thinking approach.
